"CLEAN YOUR FINGERNAILS IF '(YOU WEAR THE NEW GLOVES Ju BY MARGARET MASON 3 (Written for the United Press) fe" The latest tip-of fashion -nT . js y0ur finger tip to see, '"So take a tip and tip your mit e If swagger you would be. Neto York, March 5. Gloves with buttonholed openings in the finger Hipsf,"just sufficient for milady's rosy, highly polished fingernails to show through, are the very latest freak of fashion for evening wear. This out-a-the-finger mode started on the Hiviera and has been snatched at TPith eager hands and taken up or father on by all the well done lady 'fingers of Paris. That's what my friend, the war correspondent writes me, and he bught to know, for though he's over there to watch the warfare he doesn't miss much appertaining to the more lair. He has a weather eye on-the sideline, 'twere. According to his ex pert opinion, the peck-a-be glove when it reaches our midst will bid fair to rival even the vogue of the Merry Widow hat. gAnyway, it ought to boost business for the busy little manicures, for with n opening like that before it, every 'self-respecting finger nail will vie with one another to make its coming jjut 'party a vision of pink polished jpefteption. '' After all, why shouldn't milady's finger tips be put on view? With a little of everything else exposed in tifepresent all-revealing, naught-con-(leallng evening toilettes, why draw tife'"lme at ten poor, little, innocent fingers. dNext to a hand-painted face comes the"-hahd-painted hat. They come high, too, my dears, but you simply nTUst have one. Garlands of vari colored flowers are painted on the sfik or chiffon-covered upper brims of those cute little low-crowned sailor shapes. Likewise painted in 'nosegays that would put poor Flora to the blush are those omnipresent ribbon bands that tie round the new spring hats with dinkey bows and drippy ends behind. Transparent hats with wide floppy brims of lace, maline or chiffon are in again and these also when the brim is of plain ungathered chiffon spurn not a hand painted rose or two in their gossa mer surfaces. There's heaps of dot and dash about most of the new spring silks. Those that haven't had a check put on them will have us all quite dotty if we don't watch out, for polka dots from the pin point variety up to the dimensions of a 25-cent piece and are as thick as peas. These good old reliable combinations of a white dot on a black or navy blue 'ground and vice-versa are much in evidence. Like the complete check outfit to go with these dotted frocks there are also shown forsooth stockings, hats, para sols and handkerchiefs as dotty as they make 'em. Don't you just dote on dots? j j T yrf-r Wl-Wii- V "What do you think, Miss Chen ille, a friend of mine got a 3-karat diamond ring for only $80." "Why don't you look out for a bar gain like that, Mr. SJowguy?" And presently it dawned upon him that the remark was going to cos Mm money.
